About Us

Our Faith Lutheran Church was founded in 1975, meeting each Sunday at various local locations.  In 1981, Our Faith purchased property on Oak Ave, where the sanctuary was completed in 1985.  Later, in 2004, property was bought on which the Ministry Center now stands.  Our Sunday Worship service utilizes a traditional liturgy (order of service) framed by the Scriptures and centered on Christ.  Our music consists of both traditional hymns and contemporary songs.  The power and hope of the Gospel is central to everything we do.  

Our Faith teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.

We believe the Bible to be the true, inerrant, infallible Word of God.  We confess that our faith is accurately expressed in the documents of the Lutheran Confessions compiled in the Book of Concord.  We accept and teach Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.

We are called to faith, not blind faith, but faith rooted in trust supported by the beams of Scripture, Baptism, and Holy Communion.  We believe that being nourished by God's Word (Scripture) and the Sacraments (Baptism and Holy Communion) build faith, giving us strength for the journey of life.

Our Faith Lutheran Church is a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.  The word "Synod" comes from the Greek words that mean "walking together."  It has rich meaning in our church body because the congregations voluntarily choose to belong to the Synod.  Each congregation holds to a shared confession of Jesus Christ as taught in Holy Scripture and the  Lutheran Confessions.
